The biggest health survey ever carried out in the Harrogate district has idenitified dementia services as an area of concern.

Almost 7,000 people responded to the survey led by MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, Andrew Jones.

He said: “Overwhelmingly people’s experiences of the NHS in our area have been positive.

“Satisfaction ratings are high – mostly over 90 per cent – which is a tribute not just to our hard-working doctors, nurses and clinical staff but also to those who work to support them.

“There are areas of concern – such as the ratings for dementia.”

The survey found that 95.1 per cent or people were fairly satisfied or very satisfied with their last GP consultation and 92.1 per cent were fairly satisfied or very satisfied with the medical aspects of their last hospital stay.

However only 59.7 per cent of people were fairly satisfied or very satisfied with dementia services in Harrogate.
